The Embryo (Al-Alaq)
19 verses, revealed in Mecca. First revelation of the Quran before The Pen (Al-Qalam)
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Most Merciful
Recite thou in the name of thy Lord Who hath created (1) Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood: (2) Recite: And thy Lord is the Most Generous, (3) Who teacheth by the pen, (4) taught Man that he knew not. (5) Nay, but man doth transgress all bounds, (6) for he believes himself to be self-sufficient. (7) Indeed towards your Lord only is the return. (8) Seest thou one who forbids- (9) a servant (of Allah) when he prays? (10) Have you seen if he is upon guidance (11) Or had enjoined piety, (it would have been better)? (12) Did you consider: what if he gives the lie (to the Truth) and turns away (from it)? (13) Does he not know that God observes all things? (14) Let him know that if he does not desist, We shall certainly drag him by his forelocks, (15) his lying, sinful forelock. (16) Then let him call upon his henchmen! (17) We will call the guards of Hell (to deal with him)! (18) No, indeed; do not obey him! Prostrate and come nearer (to Allah). ۩ (19)
True are the words of Allah the Almighty.
